Ignite, Influence, and Inspire Black Teens to Lifelong Success!

Since 2006, our global volunteer Video Mentors -have been sharing their wealth of expertise, knowledge, and skills via weekly face-to-face video calls thru Infinite Family’s secure Internet platform. In just 30 minutes a week (32 weeks per year) from home or work, Video Mentors help their Net Buddy mentees’ strengthen resilience, resourcefulness and responsibility by focusing on five key impact areas: education, career preparation, technology literacy, life skills and communication. Infinite Family's South African team provides comprehensive training and real-time support - you are never alone.

For the past 6 years, 96% of video mentored 12th grade students qualified to advance among first in their families to go to college and get good jobs, as compared to 59% of their non-mentored peers. Having you share their journey will change their destination forever !

Mission Statement

To promote self-reliance--to augment what’s taught in the classroom and the home to help develop resilient, responsible, and resourceful students as they prepare for their lives as young adults and beyond. Mentors use both formal and impromptu exercises to guide their mentees to develop new skills in education, technology, career preparation, communication and life skills, while also learning new solutions that break self-destructive patterns of behavior.
